Who’s Chainsaw Larry?

I’m Larry.

And I’m here to teach you everything I know about chainsaws.

Hence the nickname, “Chainsaw Larry”.

I don’t mean to toot my own horn, but I’m quite a master at cutting wood. As a youngster, I started with an axe. My papa taught me everything he knew about how to swing it the “right” way to split firewood.

Eventually, I graduated to using a chainsaw. And boy, was that a game changer.

Using an axe was a painfully slow process for chopping wood and it’s not something I ever want to do again—if I can help it. Chainsaws make the labor of cutting firewood (and doing other types of trimming around the yard) so much easier and they’re definitely my preferred tool of choice.

My papa loved chainsaws too.

He was actually kind of a fanatic.

It’s no wonder why I’m so passionate about the tree cutting craft since I spent so much time around him.

Over the years, I’ve had the luxury of using every type of chainsaw there is (gas-powered, electric, and battery-operated) for every purpose (trimming, pruning, felling, and bucking).

I’ve also learned practically everything there is to know about these power-cutting machines.

Consider me your “chainsaw buddy”

If you want to find the best chainsaws for a specific purpose, I can help.

If you want to learn how to properly use a chainsaw, I can help with that too.

And, if you want to get every question you’ve ever had about chainsaws answered, I’ve got you covered there too.

The good thing about chainsaws is that there’s a top choice for every person out there—a saw that feels perfect in the hands, has just the right amount of power, and helps you get the job done without any worries.

And I can help you find it.

Aside from the years of experience using chainsaws, what also makes me an expert in this field is that I’ve spent countless hours researching and comparing chainsaws of every type. So, check out my free Chainsaw Buying Guides to find the perfect chainsaw for your needs.

In particular, you may enjoy my top chainsaws list. It includes the top 10 chainsaws with reviews on gas, battery, and electric models.

Or check out these specific chainsaw guides:

Another thing I like to share about chainsaws is that they’re really not that hard to use. Many people feel intimidated by these sawing machines, but if you practice just a few safety steps, you can cut wood all day long without any fear of injuring yourself.

I’ve definitely made my fair share of mistakes over the years when cutting wood, but I’ve also learned some great tips and tricks from pros too. These are all things you can benefit from by reading about them in the Learning Center of this site.

Since I know a lot of about chainsaws, I’m also asked often about proper maintenance, how to cut certain things around the house, and ways to get the most out of each chainsaw type. I’ve done my best to include those common questions and answers in the Learning Center too. So, be sure to check it out.

My advice is free and always will be.

I don’t think it’s right to keep knowledge about things that others can benefit from to yourself or charge people for your “tips” just so you can make a couple of bucks.

That’s why everything I know about chainsaws is laid out here for you to enjoy. You won’t find any subscription fees, gated content, or sneaky advertisements coming from me.

Money is never exchanged between us on or off this site.

I’m fully committed to giving you my honest opinion and advice for free when it comes to buying and using chainsaws.

My knowledge is your gain.

The only way I do make money from this site is if you click on a product link and end up buying it. I receive a small commission from each sale but it doesn’t impact the price you pay at all. Everything I recommend can be bought on Amazon.com because it’s a trustworthy site and has an excellent return policy.

I hope this brief rant has helped you understand a little bit more about me and what you can expect by poking around on this site. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me and I’ll try to help you the best that I can.

Take care,
Chainsaw Larry
